The Sermon on the Mount, one of the most influential portions of the Bible, is the most studied and commented upon portion of the Christian Scriptures. Every Christian generation turns to it for insight and guidance. In this volume, a recognized expert on the Gospels shows that the Sermon on the Mount offers a clear window into understanding God's work in Christ. Jonathan Pennington provides a historical, theological, and literary commentary on the Sermon and explains how this text offers insight into God's plan for human flourishing. As Pennington explores the literary dimensions and theological themes of this famous passage, he situates the Sermon in dialogue with the Jewish and Greek virtue traditions and the philosophical-theological question of human flourishing. He also relates the Sermon's theological themes to contemporary issues such as ethics, philosophy, and economics.

Climbing Mount Improbable

How could such an intricate object as the human eye - so complex and so precise - have come about by chance? In this masterful piece of popular science, Richard Dawkins builds a powerful and carefully reasoned argument for evolutionary adapatation as the force behind all life on earth. The metaphor of 'Mount Improbable' represents the combination of perfection and improbability that we find in the seemingly 'designed' complexity of living things. And through it all runs the thread of DNA, the molecule of life, responsible for its own destiny on an unending pilgrimage through time. Evocative illustrations accompany Dawkins' eloquent descriptions of astonishing adaptations in the living world.

Emphasizing the historical distance between the New Testament and our contemporary culture, The Sermon on the Mount by Scot McKnight, part of the new The Story of God Bible Commentary series, offers helpful contextual insights for those seeking to discern how to live out the Bible in today’s world. Perfect for pastors, students, Sunday school teachers, and lay people alike, this highly anticipated series provides a clear and compelling exposition of the text in the context of the Bible’s overarching story. The authors move away from “application” language, which has been criticized as being too simplistic, encouraging instead a wider perspective and discussion of how the biblical story can be lived today. Offering a new type of application commentary for today’s context, the Story of God Bible Commentary series explains and illuminates Scripture as God’s Story, with each New Testament text examined as embedded in its canonical and historical setting, in order to foster discernment in living the story faithfully and creatively with and for the Church in the 21st Century.

Mary Lyon and the Mount Holyoke Missionaries

American women played in important part in Protestant foreign missionary work from its early days at the beginning of the nineteenth century. This work allowed them to disseminate the Prostestant religious principles in which they believed, and by enabling them to acquire professional competence as teachers, to break into public life and create new opportunities for themselves and other women. No institution was more closely associated with women missionaries than Mount Holyoke College. In this book, Amanda Porterfield examines Mount Holyoke founder Mary Lyon and the missionary women she trained. Her students assembled in a number of particular mission fields, most importantly Persia, India, Ceylon, Hawaii, and Africa. Porterfield focuses on three sites where documentation about their activities is especially rich-- northwest Persia, Maharashtra in western India, and Natal in southeast Africa. All three of these sites figured importantly in antebellum missionary strategy; missionaries envisioned their converts launching the conquest of Islam from Persia, overturning "Satan's seat" in India, and drawing the African descendants of Ham into the fold of Christendom. Porterfield shows that although their primary goal of converting large numbers of women to Protestant Christianity remained elusive, antebellum missionary women promoted female literacy everywhere they went, along with belief in the superiority and scientific validity of Protestant orthodoxy, the necessity of monogamy and the importance of marital affection, and concern for the well-being of children and women. In this way, the missionary women contributed to cultural change in many parts of the world, and to the development of new cultures that combined missionary concepts with traditional ideals.

Alles, was Sie wissen, ist falsch. Was, wenn all das, was wir als gesichert und selbstverständlich annehmen, nicht stimmt? Was, wenn Ihr Haus nie gebaut wurde, Ihr Job nicht existiert, Ihre Frau Sie nie zuvor gesehen hat? Würden Sie sich dann auf die Suche nach Ihrem Leben machen? Peter Saunders erwacht in einem Krankenhaus in Cincinnati. Er hat wirre Vorstellungen von einem Autounfall und einer Wanderung mit seinem Freund Luther, die in einem heftigen Gewittersturm endete. Darüber hinaus hat er Erinnerungen an ein Leben, das er offenbar nie geführt hat. Was Saunders nicht weiß, ist, dass er während eines unglaublichen Experiments in einem Forschungstunnel des Mount Maroon Laboratory entdeckt wurde. War er für die gewaltige Explosion verantwortlich, bei der zwei Techniker getötet wurden? Ist er ein Umweltschützer oder gar ein Terrorist? Dann tauchen mysteriöse Fakten auf. Als Peter Saunders eine schreckliche Entdeckung macht, beginnt eine wilde Jagd auf der Suche nach Identität und Wahrheit. Ethan Bayce legt mit Mount Maroon den möglicherweise spannendsten und anspruchsvollsten Wissenschaftsthriller seit Frank Schätzings Der Schwarm vor. An vorderster Front des bekannten Wissens - wie einst H.G. Wells - wirft Bayce wissenschaftliche und philosophische Fragen auf, die auch nach dem Zuklappen des Buches weiterwirken. Anders als in manchen ähnlich gelagerten Büchern kennt der Autor seine Materie sehr genau. Spannend, tiefsinnig und beklemmend wartet Bayce mit einer überraschenden und wissenschaftlich schlüssigen Auflösung auf. Ein Thriller der Spitzenklasse.
